Over the next five weeks, Prilly followed a strict routine as if her life depended on it. She was at the office every day by eight thirty. Janice usually arrived by eight, if not earlier, and often started Prilly’s day by popping unannounced into her office to review her latest ideas. Prilly worked hard, both on her considerable normal responsibilities and, even more so, on the memoir series. She was determined to stay focused while at work.
